chuck hagel's nomination. let's listen to senator reid reacting to the republicans holding up hagel's nomination. >> but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense. for the sake of our national security, it's time to put aside this political theater. and that's what it is. it's tragic that they've decided to filibuster this qualified nominee. it is really unfortunate. >> can you give us the status of this whole thing and explain where we are in the process? >> as we know, the republicans did not allow a vote to happen. they invoke cloture which means it's on hold. what's happened now is the congress on a break for a week, chuck hagel's got to wait around. and there's a concern, i think, at the white house and other areas that something could come up. that's what people are looking for. the white house is expressing confidence. president obama said he's confident this will happen. and other administration officials have put the word out that they are confident. but whether it happens or not after congress gets bac

carthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them?

that republicans like texas senator ted cruz have put on chuck hagel to mccarthyism. what was the point of prolonging this hagel vote until after everyone reconvenes? >> well, i think that republicans started out with some legitimate questions about this, and they would say they're just trying to get those answered and need more time. it was harry reid who called this vote as sort of an attempt to call their bluff saying this is enough, you're delaying this for no reason but i don't think this is going to help the republicans' image especially when they're going around saying we're not actually trying to stop this nomination. we're not actually filibustering, so what are they doing? i think especially for people who are sick of the sort of washington games, this isn't a good image for them. >> jake, let's talk about this break that congress is on. house speaker nancy pelosi blamed republicans for not using this time more productively. take a listen. >> they manufactured the crisis and instead of having us try to avert that crisis they go on a nine-day recess. why? ? why? people outside

a favor by withdrawing the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. a man who is so utterly and ignorant of the real enemy that we face that he believes that iran can be trusted and israel can't. he'd be better suited for taking tickets at yellow stone than the placement of our military assets to defend against threats. i hope you'll call and e-mail your senator, urge him or her to use a little common sense. and while acknowledging that the president has the privilege to name his team. he does not have the right to put people on his team, who betrayed the trust of the american people and our friends in the real world. that's my view.

yesterday was chuck hagel who looked like he was going to be confirmed as the next secretary of defense. it looks like he's kind of being filibustered. republicans are saying we're going to put him up for a simple majority vote later this month but we want some answers on benghazi answered and senator lindsay graham is the guy behind it. listen to this. >> the best evidence of what happened that night were the survivors. they will not give the united states congress, the f.b.i. interviews of the survivors. we've been told five different versions of who changed the talking points. this is not transparent. they're delaying, denying, deceiving. they ran out the clock during the election. i will not give up until we know what happened. at the end of the day it is about four dead americans. the way this president handled this situation, his national security team, is a travesty and we need to get to the bottom of it. and we will. >>alisyn: no interviews with survivors provided to the lawmakers. still no idea where the suspects are. they were released and are roaming freely somewhere in the m
